new J solo album huh?January 15, 2013 at 12:05 pm #139894
I spoke to him when he was in London and he implied another solo CD. Although that was a while ago and he was probably trying to get rid of me : ) -Plus maybe that album turned into tracks on IBOS??. He never has much to say as I’m sure your aware! Although he did sign some stuff (which some C*NT stole with my bag) and I got to watch the soundcheck by myself! Plus a photo together…..Good dayJanuary 15, 2013 at 5:49 pm #139895
…. you met J…..
i can’t imagine what i’d do if i got to speak to him… how did you get to meet + watch the soundcheck?!!
but yeah it’s good to hear he has plans for another solo album! following that, another UK tour hopefully!January 15, 2013 at 9:29 pm #139896
that would be a good day, even with the stolen stuff!
There is also a new Witch album in the works as well as a 2 (or maybe 3) cd set from Sweet Apple – not sure if it will be released in a staggered fashion or bundled thoughJanuary 16, 2013 at 2:58 am #139897
@doesitfloat As a band they just kind of walk about…… I’ve stood and just talked to Murph outside the Scala having a smoke or they sit in a bar next door. They don’t hide away, What’s strange though is either I’m really uncool as I always go and say hello or nobody else notices them 🙂 ?
Once I saw J play a solo gig and he stood at the bar before the show by himself for 30 mins+, not one person spoke to him!?? Then the light on stage came on and he walked through the crowd and just climbed up and played…… Quite funny. I was stood next to him going “and can you sign this and this and this………..”
I did work as a buyer in music so I got backstage passes sometimes, but that time I met him I just walked in the back door of the venue and sat down, Normally if nobody knows who you are, they think you work there ;)!January 16, 2013 at 11:53 am #139898
haha that is so sweet and a very funny story about Murph and J…! that’s quit amazing how no one bothered to speak to J…. ha haJanuary 24, 2013 at 2:49 pm #139899
I got backstage passes a couple of years ago, when Dinosaur Jr was touring with Watt. It was pretty funny… My friend and I went back and saw Watt and J talking (well, Watt was doing all the talking), and it was Lou who enthusiastically invited us in, welcomed us to grab something out of the cooler and hang out. We also got to watch them film part of the video for “Over It”. Specifically the part where “J” (AKA a stunt skater in a grey wig) hops across a table covered in glass bottles and crashed into the wall. It was pretty cool to be a part of all that. The only downer is that J really didn’t look like he was feeling well.
